New favorite tee from J. Crew

When summer rolls in, you will find me mostly in tees and shorts. Nothing makes me more comfy and cool in the hot sticky weather. But don't you find sometimes, it is hard to find a tee which is not too thick and not too thin. I like patterned tees to pair with simple shorts.

I picked up a J. Crew vintage cap sleeve stripe tee in-store a couple of weeks ago during the "crazy" sale(see tee in this post here). The only size left was a large and I hesitated to get it but thought nothing wrong with an over-sized tee. I was wrong. This tee is way too big on me and since it is a v-neck tee, the plunged neckline is too revealing. I later on had to layer it up with a camisole. So kind of defeat the purpose of a thin cotton tee. 

Last weekend was Canada Day weekend, J. Crew offered free shipping on all orders. So I grabbed a Vintage cotton V-neck tee in stripe(which is currently sold out online but I'm sure it will pop back up sooner or later)

Don't know what is going on with me this summer. I'm so into hot pink and neon pink. The pair of sandals were from many summers ago from Browns. I have not worn them in years but for some reason, I didn't get rid of them. I always have a theory that if there is something in your closet which you haven't worn in the past 2 years, throw them out. These sandals are at least 5 years old. They are super comfy and got cute little flowers on them. But I haven't worn pink in summer for a long time. 

This tee is so comfy and the v-neckline is just right. Want to get it in grey stripes too. Maybe it will pop back up some mornings.

    1. With the 30% off sale items online, I'm hoping that I will get another one (probably in the grey stripes). Keeping my fingers crossed for popbacks!

    1. yes, think navy kind of tone down the " cuteness" of pink. I love my tee, just wishing for more popback for J. Crew online soon so I can take advantage of the 30% off sale promo.

      Thank you very much. So sweet of you :)

  8. Lord knows I have so many items that I haven't touched for more than 2 years that are still taking up valuable wardrobe/drawer space! :p I need to do a closet clean out. I love striped shirts, they're universally flattering and so easy to wear for a relaxed, casual look that's still put together :)

    1. My theory is once I'm running out of hangers, time to get rid of some stuff before I can go get some new items. But I broke the rule earlier, I went out and bought some more hangers haha
